Abstract This article considers the impact of the High Court's findings in 'Kuczborski v Queensland ('Kuczborski')' on the scope of the 'Kable' doctrine. In particular, 'Kuczborski' confirms that Kable cannot be relied upon as a source of implied rights protection, even when those rights relate to a fair trial. Nonetheless, the doctrine presents an important limit on governmental powers in the states and territories - provided that any 'Kable' challenge is focussed squarely on the 'essential aspect' of the doctrine, namely, the institutional integrity of state courts, and not on arguments pertaining to the severity of the laws or their impact on citizens.
